Heart and Sole

 (Kingston Family #1)

by Miranda Liasson 






Getting even.
One step at a time…

Maddie Kingston just walked away from everything in order to take over her family’s struggling shoe business. And she’s in some serious trouble. The majority of the company’s shares have been bought out by none other than Maddie’s ex-boyfriend, self-made billionaire Nick Holter. Now Maddie needs his help…even if it means buying Nick from a charity bachelor auction.

After the Kingstons destroyed his grandfather’s career, Nick vowed to take over their company. He’s inches from victory when he finds himself bought and paid for…by his sexy ex-girlfriend who’s hell-bent on saving her family’s company. Between their families’ feud and their own unfinished business, tempers – and emotions – run hot. Too hot.

Because kissing with the enemy is a guaranteed shoe-in for trouble…

Favorite Quotes:


She felt like Goldilocks caught with porridge on her face. And here was the great big bear.


“Chat?” He said it like she wanted to give him vaccinations. Multiple ones.


My Review:


Heart and Sole was an amusing, cleverly written, and wittily titled second chance romance. Nick had been Maddie’s first love, although he hailed from the poor side of town, a fact her heinous and vile grandmother delighted in pointing out, and there was also the problem that their families were enmeshed in a long standing yet unexplained feud. Many years later Nick was wildly successful with a business empire and full pockets, and the shoe was now on the other foot as Maddie’s family business was going under. The characters were endearing, the writing was well paced and entertaining, and the storyline was well-balanced with some relationship zigzags, angst, humor, a mean girl version of a pissing contest, and a few sizzling hot sensual scenes. And I may have fist pumped when granny finally got hers. I am hoping for more of the same as lucky for me, I have the other two books in this series already loaded on my Kindle.

    I was coming to say the same thing Bound To Writing said! Sounds like more modern (and more sexy) star-crossed lovers.
